Always good higher end Indian food. Great staff/owners! May take a little longer than estimate sometimes for to go orders. Dining room is small but nice.

Amazing food, amazing service! We go nearly every week and have never been disappointed. I've tried pretty much all the veggie dishes and there hasn't been a single thing that wasn't good. Although, IMHO, the vegetable masala is do die for! The service is great, they truly care about their customers and are super friendly to kids!

The food at Royal India Bistro is fresh and delicious. I leave feeling full, but not unwell from too much salt. Spices are perfectly balanced. We eat here often, and it is by far our favorite Indian restaurant in the greater Boston area.
Don't miss the garlic Naan!
Friendly, simple, delicious... and quiet enough to talk. All this, plus moderate prices. Fabulous.

Royal India Bistro is hands down our favorite Indian restaurant. Royal India Bistro is a family-owned, family-run business. Since moving to Lexington from Brookline, we frequent this restaurant at least once a week. Owner Jatinder Singh (with his brother Ravinder) is always friendly with us - he works extremely hard and consistently puts the customer first. His restaurant has a strong focus on quality dishes/entrees...day in and day out. I'm a big fan of the chicken tikka masala or the machi masala, and my wife is hooked on the vegetable masala. Ditto for the naans (we prefer the garlic & basil). We're both fans of the aloo palak and baingan bharta, and the luncheon specials are a great deal - generous portions at a very reasonable price.

Our favorite Indian restaurant closed (Kushboo in Lexington) so we have been looking (so far, unsuccessfully) for a replacement. The food wasn't bad here but neither was it anything worth driving for 30 minutes to get to. It is quite small and does not take reservations.
